(KARE) A 13-year-old's summer hot dog stand is now officially permitted by the city of Minneapolis.

Jaequan Faulkner opened his hot dog stand earlier this summer in hopes of raising enough money to buy new school clothes.

"Mr. Faulkner's Old Fashioned Hot Dogs" received a lot of support after officers with "Bike Cops for Kids" encouraged people on Facebook to visit his stand.

However, Faulkner's business was not officially permitted. According to the city, all businesses that serve food to the public must pass city health inspections to get permitted.

According to Logan Ebeling, a health inspector with the city of Minneapolis, they received a complaint about his stand.
